Posted on 10 Jul 2017 by

Homeowners are always looking for ways to improve the value of their home. Whether you are looking to spruce up your home or you’re about to put your home on the market, here are five ways you can increase the value of your home – a mix of both budget-friendly and bigger home projects.

  1. Maintenance and Repairs
    It is important for homeowners to address any lingering repairs if they want to increase the value of their home. From drafty windows to leaks to old rain gutters, any maintenance and necessary repairs should definitely be a priority.
  2. Apply a New Coat of Paint
    One of the easiest and least inexpensive ways to increase the value of your home is to simply apply a fresh coat of paint. Opt for neutrals. If you have any wallpaper covering your walls, now would be the time to remove it – it doesn’t tend to sell well.
  3. Upgrade the Kitchen (Custom Cabinetry)
    The leading upgrade with the greatest return on investment according to every real estate agent (and with the research to support it) is undoubtedly upgrading the kitchen. You have a variety of projects that you can take on that will increase the value of your home, such as updating your kitchen faucet and choosing energy-efficient lights, but custom cabinetry will generate perhaps the greatest return on investment. Anytime you add storage to your home, you will increase its value.You can also update your appliances to stainless steel for an added boost. A budget-friendly option is to simply change the front plate on your oven or dishwasher.
  4. Focus on Lighting
    Light is a key element for all homebuyers. Increase the chances of a sale by improving your lighting. Add a skylight or replace light bulbs with energy-efficient ones.
  5. Update Your Bathroom
    The bathroom is perhaps the second most value-generating area of the home next to the kitchen. Depending upon your budget, you could replace an old bathroom floor with vinyl tile or replace chipped tiles in the bathtub.
  6. Improve the Exterior
    The outside of your home is just as important as the inside. From installing energy-efficient windows to updating your siding to landscaping, there are many things you can do to the outside of your home that will generate great returns.
